Limerick a top seed ahead of Tuesday’s Tailteann Cup draw

Limerick’s relegation to Division 3 and failure to make the Munster final has them in the Tailteann Cup where they are a top seed.

Limerick will learn their Tailteann Cup opponents this afternoon with the draw to be made at 1pm on Tuesday and will be broadcast live on (GAANOW) and available on the @OfficialGAA and @GAAGO social media channels.

It will be a debut season in the Tailteann for Limerick following its introduction in 2022. Westmeath were the maiden winners and booked their place in the Sam Maguire as a result.

Limerick’s relegation to Division 3 and failure to make the Munster final has them in the Tailteann Cup where they are a top seed alongside last year’s finalists and Division 3 winners Cavan, Fermanagh who were runners up to Cavan and Meath who finished 6th in Division 2.

Tailteann Cup Draw Seedings

1st seeds: Meath, Cavan, Fermanagh, Limerick

2nd seeds: Down, Offaly, Antrim, Wicklow

3rd seeds: Longford, Tipperary, Laois, Wexford

4th seeds: Leitrim, Carlow, Waterford, London

In the Tailteann Cup, the 16 participating Counties will also be drawn to four separate groups. Teams will be seeded based on their finishing positions in the Allianz Leagues and each group will feature four teams (each group consisting of a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th seed). New York will enter the Tailteann Cup at the Preliminary Quarter final stage.
